Because of other reviews, I ordered this vest for my daughter and myself. For sizing info, we are both about 5' tall, approx. 100 lbs, ordered girls M for daughter ( a little slimmer than me) and girls L for myself ( bigger on top). Fit is great, vest is light weight yet warm, not perfectly form fitting but practical and not too long. I'm happy with this purchase and my college age daughter has worn her vest several times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bauerade Great vest, very warm, super cute
I normally wear a women's small/medium (5'4" 140 lbs athletic build) and ordered a girls XL. It's a little bigger than I expected, but I'm fine with it being a little boxy and big in the middle. I was worried about it being tight around the bust and arm holes but both fit great. I wear it over flannels and button down shirts, even sweat shirts sometimes. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gladtohavethiscoat Four grandchildren happy
I gave the girl version and the boy version of this vest to four kids who like it a lot. Don't buy up in size if in doubt. It's sized by age and I hit the nail ok on all but one, who chose the next size down. The vests seem to be sold in a way which would suggest they are unisex styling but the girl version is slightly shaped and the boy version has slightly bigger squares. We love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alleyoop Perfect vest for me!
Fit is awesome, quality is definitely what I expected from Lands End. I wear it all the time, temps between 30 and 40, usually have sweater underneath, just enough for running errands, going out to lunch.....
I'm normally a size 4 petite, this fits perfectly....so glad I bought it. Can't imagine I went this long without it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Emmeli Great for petite women as well
After numerous disappointing outerwear purchases in women's petite and in a desperate need for a new vest, I decided to ventured into the children's section on a whim. I spotted this vest that essentially looks exactly like the women's version but in smaller sizes. I'm 5'1 and roughly between 124-127lbs. I can wear tops in petite 0 and petite xs with a slight bagginess in Land's End sizing. I was a bit skeptical about purchasing in the children's size because I have a defined waist. I wasn't sure if the children's version would be too boxy for me. However, I took the plunge and discovered this is a great alternative to petite women who is sized out of LE's women's petite sizes during to vanity sizing. I initially ordered a L due to being unsure what my size was. When it arrived, I thought the quality was quite impressive. It is a thin construction vest that is lightweight but substantial in terms of warmth. I have used the vest underneath a cotton outer fleece lined jacket on a 30F something degree day and I stayed toasty without layers or anything special. I get cold quite easily. My hands and feet are perpetually cold during the cooler months. I'm nicknamed the icecube during those months. I love the warmth this vest provides me. However, the L was too big for me and I ordered a M which fits me perfectly even if I were to layer underneath. I did have an issue between the navy and the black options. The navy is wonderful but the black sheds the down way too much. I'm not sure if I received a black vest with bad stitching or not. But seeing as the navy does not have this issue, I'll say that it's more of a fluke than an element of this vest and it's construction. The pockets on the vest are great too. I have kept my rather large smartphone in it and it has not fallen out even once. I ordered this vest for my mom too who usually wears a size 8p in LE wool coats, a petite S in LE tops, and a petite M in LE cardigans, she can fit into the XL vest perfectly.

I'm 5'0 and 93 pounds with a petite build and the medium size fit me like a glove! Definitely listen to the recommended size on the size chart. So great for smaller women since land's end sizes run so large.

Rated 3 out of 5 by starray I Sent it back because it did not fit my daughter propertly. The style was actually very cute.
Too small for my daughter

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alphaz3bra The down vest is perfect for winter dashes from house to car or car to karate class.
My granddaughter has a little room to grow in her down vest. She will wear it all winter to different activities. It is an unofficial part of her karate gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPDC Great for adults!
I finally found a vest that is a great fit for me - an adult! I'm so glad I read the reviews of the other adults! I have several LE vests that I purchased a good 5 years ago that I love and wear ALL the time. I was in the market for a navy blue vest and I was so disappointed in the sizing of the new styles. The small was too wide and the x small was too short (to provide reference, I'm 5'4", 118 lbs., and long waisted). On a whim, I decided to look into the girls' sizing. I was on the cusp of the height limitation for the XL (I am long waisted and was worried that it would be too short), but decided to try it out just to see. I LOVE it! I am small through the shoulders and the fit is wonderful! The arm holes are a perfect fit and it fits so nicely through my torso. The only minor differences are the at the pockets are a tad smaller and the collar is slightly smaller. Otherwise its fantastic!
